Our Vice-President’s Thank you Note – 2016/2017

THANK YOU

At the beginning of every year, I get the opportunity to write this short heartfelt thank you for the previous year. This year is no different and there isn’t enough words that can aptly express how thankful we are at WAAW Foundation for our partners and supporters.

At WAAW foundation our vision remains to lift Africa out of poverty by empowering African women. We are not there yet, we still receive overwhelming numbers of applicants to our scholarship program. There are so many girls out there in need of assistance and every year we can only help a few. We are undaunted and still take up this challenge to continue to remain dedicated to our vision. We have noticed recently that increasing number of girls also wants to give back to their community. Application to start STEM Chapters in their local universities have risen, much to our delight. It is well known from experience that, equipped with the proper resources, impoverished women have the power to help their families and entire communities escape poverty. With a shared commitment towards our goal, we are convinced we will continue to see signs of success towards building up the African woman, with dignity and security to be all she can be.

WAAW foundation is honored to say thank you to our institutional partners, board of advisers, members of our executive board, our individual volunteers, our partners, our friends and our donors. We acknowledge the contribution of every one who has entrusted us with the resources needed to pursue our common vision. At every level of giving, you enable WAAW foundation to begin on a sure foot, in serving Africa and African girls striving to overcome poverty. Our girls who are impacted by all our efforts are our future and deserve to be enriched and empowered. We are deeply humbled by your partnership and your faith in our vision.

 

Thank you again!

Yours in service,

Ebele Agu
